I'm trying to print on a piece of paper that is 5.5x8.5. I need to create this size I guess to have it print properly. How do I do that?

Thank you for helping me. I made my custom size page into a style but when I go to print it, there still aren't any correctly sized selections to print. Do you know how to get those custom sizes to choose from when printing?

@C.Sara,

When responding to an answer it is best to add a comment under the answer you are responding to. In your post here, the person who you are responding to never receives a notification and has no idea you responded unless they specifically view the question again or you specifically mention their name as I did yours here (i.e. @RGB-es ) .

Writer uses the concept of "page style." Basically, you set the properties of a group of pages (and that group can take the whole document) under a style. If you look at the status bar on the lower part of Writer's window, in the third "box" counting from the left you'll find the name of the current page style: click on it to edit its properties, or use the style editor in the Side Bar (open it with F11). In the "Page" tab you'll be able to define the page size, either by picking a predefined size or by using a custom one, its margins, etc..

To use Writer, you need to learn how to manage styles. You can use the official documentation for that or, if you don't mind the self promotion, read my free book about Writer.

@C.Sara it's been more than a decade since I last used a physical printer at home: when I need to print I build a PDF and send it to someone else, so sorry, I don't even have a printer driver on my system to check what's needed.
